James Campbell - author visit!
Year 2 loved meeting James Campbell at our author visit today.  He told us so many funny stories and we got to ask questions about what it is like to be an author, how you become an author or how you get ideas.
He told us a super story about a naughty Wimpety Wamp with 9 heads! 2SL wrote about this character and drew him using the Early Essentials Programme in ICT too.  
Katie Morag Shortbread
Year 2 had a go at following instructions to make Katie Morag shortbread biscuits. The recipe is below if you would like to have a go at making some at home!
